Time Warner Cable SportsNet to Televise Los Angeles D-Fenders Games This Season

Time Warner Cable SportsNet will telecast 12 Los Angeles D-Fenders home games during the 2012-13 season, it was announced today, as yet another extension of Time Warner Cable Sports’ relationship with the Lakers and the Buss family. The D-Fenders are the official minor league team of the Los Angeles Lakers. The network will also give fans unparalleled access to the D-Fenders through behind-the-scenes features that will air on Time Warner Cable SportsNet’s weekly documentary series “Backstage: Lakers.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Time Warner Cable SportsNet this season,” said Joey Buss, President/CEO of the D-Fenders. “This is an opportunity for our fans, Lakers fans and basketball fans to develop a connection with top D-Fenders prospects as well as Lakers assignment players, both of which are instrumental to the future of the Lakers and NBA.”

As part of the agreement, former Laker and three-time NBA Champion A.C. Green and 20-year broadcasting veteran Steve Quis have been tabbed to handle color commentary and play-by-play duties.

“The combination of Lakers and D-Fenders games and content on Time Warner Cable SportsNet will give Southern California sports fans a more comprehensive viewing experience,” said Mark Shuken, Senior Vice President and General Manager of TWC Sports Regional Networks. “We’re excited to work with the D-Fenders to televise their games this season.”

Green, an NBA Champion with the Lakers in 1987, 1988 and 2000, joins the Time Warner Cable SportsNet on-air team after a successful basketball playing career that spanned 16 seasons and three decades. The former forward holds the record for most consecutive games played with 1,192 dating from 11/19/86 – 4/18/01 while a member of the Lakers, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and Miami Heat. The only player to win championships at the Great Western Forum and STAPLES Center, Green was a first round selection (23rd overall) by the Lakers in the 1985 NBA Draft and graduated from Oregon State with a degree in Speech Communication.

Quis, a native of San Diego, brings more than 20 years of sports broadcasting experience to Time Warner Cable SportsNet and the D-Fenders. Most recently, Quis has called Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim games, Pac-12 baseball games and the 2012 CIF Basketball Championships. He also handled play-by-play duties for Mountain West Conference football games and California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Football Championship games on Time Warner Cable SportsNet this fall and has broadcast numerous games for Time Warner Cable over the years. A graduate of the University of Arizona, Quis has also served as play-by-play announcer for San Diego Padres telecasts, postgame host for the San Diego Chargers radio network and play-by-play for San Diego State University football and basketball, among other positions.

The D-Fenders on-air schedule on Time Warner Cable SportsNet is highlighted by games against the Idaho Stampede (NBA affiliate: Portland), Sioux Falls Skyforce (NBA affiliate: Miami, Minnesota, Orlando, Philadelphia), Bakersfield Jam (NBA affiliate: Atlanta, LA Clippers, Phoenix, Toronto), Fort Wayne Mad Ants (NBA affiliate: Charlotte, Detroit, Indiana, Milwaukee), Reno Bighorns (NBA affiliate: Memphis, Sacramento, Utah), Texas Legends (NBA affiliate: Dallas), Austin Toros (NBA affiliate: San Antonio), Santa Cruz Warriors (NBA affiliate: Golden State) and Canton Charge (NBA affiliate: Cleveland).

The D-Fenders, who are eight games into the season under new head coach and former NBA player Reggie Theus, return to action tomorrow night as they take on the Idaho Stampede at Toyota Sports Center, the official training facility of the Los Angeles Lakers. The game will air on Time Warner Cable SportsNet on Sunday, December 23 at 3:00 p.m.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts.

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

This is driving the need for robust wireless coexistence for multiple radios to ensure throughput performance and th...
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
